Local Government Bill 2018: Report and Final Stages
I move amendment No. 4:
In page 14, line 33, to delete “subsection (3)” and substitute “subsection (1)”.
Amendments Nos. 4 to 7, inclusive, are technical amendments to substitute subsection (1) for the four subsection (3) references in section 16. It relates to the transfer of staff in the local authorities in Cork. The relevant provision was originally in section 16(3) but amendment No. 26 on Committee Stage deleted subsections (1) to (3), inclusive, and replaced them with a single subsection (1). It had been assumed that the updating of the references would happen automatically but because it did not, I propose the four technical amendments Nos. 4 to 7, inclusive.
Amendment No. 9 is a drafting correction to section 24(7), which refers to the annual contribution by city council to county council, to replace the reference to that section with that subsection because paragraph (b) referred to is in subsection (1).
